Data Claim: Over
Monthly Indeed Unique Visitors
Source: Indeed Internal Data, April - September 2023
Indeed’s user count is measured by “unique visitors.” “Unique Visitors” is defined as the number of unduplicated (counted only once) visits to an Indeed website on a device over the course of a specified time period, and as further defined below:
When a “unique visitor” visits the Indeed site, a first-party internal (IQL) cookie with a random string of numbers and letters is placed in the relevant browser and tracks the “unique visitor’s” activity on Indeed’s site until the that browser history is cleared or 5 years has passed. Indeed then logs visit activity associated with that cookie internally for site performance monitoring and optimization.
The “unique visitor” counts referenced in this claim are an average of each month’s total of distinct cookie IDs visiting Indeed’s site between April – September 2023.
“Unique visitors” as measured based on the methodology indicated above may not be an accurate representation of actual users of Indeed. Indeed measures unique visitors based on its own internal methodology, which may not be comparable with similarly reported metrics by other companies or third-parties.
Data Claim: Approximately 39.5 Million Average Monthly Active Recipients of Indeed Ireland Operations Limited’s Service in the European Union
Source: Indeed Internal Data, January – June 2023
In calculating the approximate average monthly active recipients of Indeed Ireland Operations Limited’s service in the European Union, we used the Unique Visitors figure for users in the European Union and de-duplicated that figure for users that were logged in across multiple devices. In this context, “Indeed Ireland Operations Limited’s service” means the Indeed, SimplyHired and Gigajob websites. It does not include publishers of job advertisements sourced from Indeed, or other sites connecting to our APIs to pull job advertisements to display to their users. In calculating the average, we used the six-month simple moving average from 1 January 2023 to 30 June 2023.
